Wilma currently serves as Dean of Students at Regis College (since 2001).   As an educator in the Hamilton Wentworth Catholic School Board, she founded an alternative school for girls in Hamilton which was named Wilma’s Place in her honour when she retired.  More than 100 students who come from a variety of backgrounds – young mothers, those struggling with addictions, mental health issues and poverty – are enrolled at Wilma’s Place.  In addition to classes, it has space for laundry, a community room and a cafeteria where students hone their cooking skills making lunch.   After retiring from a career in education as a teacher, Vice Principal, Principal and Supervisory Officer, Wilma returned to further studies. She received an MA in MS  in 1999 and a Diploma in Spiritual Direction in 2001. She has experience on numerous boards and also many connections in Toronto. In her spare time Wilma like to read, cook, and experience the world through traveling.
